Someone Unfriended You? Time to Find Out Who!
For a brief time during Facebook’s initial Timeline rollout, you could see who unfriended you, and even when, just by clicking on the year and looking in your “friends” box.
Though Timeline brought many haters-of-Facebook-change out of the woodwork, this was the one new “feature” they agreed was awesome. Predictably, it didn’t last. Facebook, which prefers that you focus on the positive aspects of friendship, “fixed” the problem. And most of us went back to the old way of finding out we’ve been unfriended — stumbling upon rejection via profiles we could no longer access, and other similar disturbances in the force.
You can be proactive in uncovering your rejection however, and not just on Facebook. Tech savvy humans who sympathize with your need to know have made a variety of browser add-ons and other such applications to help you find the people who’ve left you on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and even Google (shut up!).
How easy is it to find out? Depends on the network. Here’s our guide to the apps and hacks that purport to show you who unfriended you. It can be done, in most networks.
